There are three main settlements along the beach at Sunshine Beach, Peregian Beach and the larger Coolum Beach. Sunshine Beach (1539A) is primarily a holiday and residential area, that extends for 3 km along the beach. It has the newest surf lifesaving club, established in 1982, reflecting the newness of the development. The club is located in a grassy, bluff-top beach reserve 1.5 km south of Lion Rock. Steps and a ramp lead down to the patrolled beach.
SLSA provides this information as a guide only. Surf conditions are variable and therefore this information should not be relied upon as a substitute for observation of local conditions and an understanding of your abilities in the surf. SLSA reminds you to always swim between the red and yellow flags and never swim at unpatrolled beaches. SLSA takes all care and responsibility for any translation but it cannot guarantee that all translations will be accurate.
